Enjoy Carnival’s Pig & Anchor Lynchburg Lemonade at Home

Last Updated on June 21, 2021

Spring is in the air, and what better way to celebrate than with a nice tall glass of lemonade, or even better…an adult lemonade. It’s great for relaxing outside while reading a book or making a big batch for a picnic or BBQ.

Adult lemonades have always been popular, and nowadays, you can find many versions of premade hard lemonades, but why not impress your guests with a homemade version? It’s a lot more refreshing and less carbonated than the ones you’ll find on the shelf.

You can find this drink at Guy’s Pig & Anchor Smokehouse aboard the Carnival Horizon, Carnival Panorama, Carnival Mardi Gras, and Carnival Celebration, but it’s so easy to make at home. Unlike some of the other recipes we’ve covered, there are no fancy or hard-to-find ingredients here; you can find everything at your local grocery and liquor store. Carnival uses fresh-made lemonade for their version, but you can just pick up premade lemonade mix if you want to make it easier.

To make homemade lemonade

For each serving you want to make, you need to combine:

  • 1/2 ounce fresh lemon juice
  • 1/2 ounce simple syrup
  • 1 ounce water

DON’T use the bottled lemon juice! I’ve made the mistake of doing that, and it’s not good. If you’re going to go with bottled ingredients, save the time and just buy lemonade instead.

If you’re making it from scratch, I HIGHLY recommend using a lemon juicer. This is so much easier and you get so much more than squeezing by hand. A bartender friend told me about this tool, and it made cocktail making so much easier. This is the one I have: Zulay Metal Lemon Lime Squeezer – Manual Citrus Press Juicer but you can find one at Target and Walmart as well.
